  • Why Is Professional Dental Cleaning Important?

A professional dental checkup is essential for your oral health. Even though you brush your teeth every day and night, there still can be plaque and tartar on your teeth that you cannot detect, especially between your teeth and on hard-to-reach places. Our dental professionals are trained to detect this. We have special tools that can remove the tartar and clean your teeth thoroughly.

We can clean hard-to-reach places like your back teeth and under the gums. Getting rid of plaque and tartar in these places will prevent bacteria from growing and give you healthier gums and bones. 

  • Why Are Regular Check-ups Important?

A lot of things can happen to your teeth below the surface. A check-up can uncover problems that can lead to bigger problems if they are not addressed and treated early. We can find out if you have any cavities. We can take x-rays of your teeth and see if there are any issues like impacted teeth, extra teeth, infections, teeth that are not growing straight, issues with dental roots, etc. We can also check for signs like oral cancer and other conditions. These are things that you cannot see on your own when you look inside your mouth. Our dental professionals detect these issues and treat them before they get worse.

  • What Happens During a Check-up Appointment?

In your first check-up, we strive to get to know you and learn your dental history. We also will learn your medical history in order to get an overall picture of your health. There are some medical conditions that can affect dental procedures, and we need to know that in order to give you the best in dental care. Getting to know your medical and dental history will also help us tailor any dental treatment plan to suit your specific needs.

One of our diagnostic tools is digital x-rays. We will take a set of x-rays and photos from various perspectives to look at your teeth from all angles. Through these images, we can detect if you have any tooth decay or other problems with the way your teeth are structured. For your children, we can see how their teeth are growing in. If there are issues, we can give you the right advice on how to proceed.

  • What Is A Professional Dental Cleaning?

A professional cleaning is more than just brushing your teeth. Although plaque can be removed by efficient brushing, tartar cannot. Tartar is plaque that has hardened, and which requires special dental tools to remove. The dental hygienist will use the appropriate tools to remove the tartar, brush away plaque, and clean every surface of your teeth thoroughly.

During cleaning, we will advise you on the specific areas on your teeth that you need to pay special attention to so that when you go home to brush your teeth, you can be mindful of these areas. We will show you how to floss properly so you can do that effectively as well. Proper teeth cleaning is the first line of defense against tooth decay.

  • Regular Cleaning and Checkups Should Start At An Early Age

Good oral hygiene habits should start when children are old enough to understand instructions. They can be taught how to hold a toothbrush and how to move it around in their mouths. Electric toothbrushes are recommended because they can clean more efficiently than manual toothbrushes. Help your child hold his toothbrush in the correct way by placing your hand over his and guiding it until he gets used to doing this himself.

When good oral hygiene habits start early, the result is a more beautiful and healthier smile and teeth that will last you practically a lifetime.

  • What are the types of teeth cleanings?

1. Regular Cleaning

2. Deep Cleaning

  • What’s is a Regular Cleaning?

A regular cleaning is what you would usually get when you visit your dentist twice a year. It’s intended to maintain the general cleanliness of your teeth. Your hygienist will go through a strict process to make sure that your mouth is squeaky clean to help fight off gum disease and prevent cavities. A regular cleaning will suffice when the bacteria in your mouth has not gotten too deep into your gum line.

  • What is a Deep Cleaning?

For some patients, especially those who haven’t had a regular checkup in awhile, a regular cleaning may not be able to remove all of the buildup and bacteria that can settle on the surface of your teeth. In these cases, your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning to help you avoid serious dental issues such as tooth decay, tooth loss, and gingivitis. At times, deep cleanings are the best way to prevent gum disease, which can cause serious damage to the bone structure that supports your teeth. Gum disease can also cause painful inflammation of your gums.

During a normal deep cleaning, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums for any serious dental issues that may be present. Then, your mouth will be numbed if extensive scaling or planing will be involved in order to ensure your maximum comfort during the procedure. Deep cleanings typically involved several appointments; one for each quadrant of your mouth, depending on how much dental work you need. Scaling to remove bacteria-breeding plaque and buildup from your teeth, and planing to smooth exposed tooth roots make up the main part of a deep cleaning visit, though regular polishing will also take place as well. Your dentist will fully discuss your specific treatment procedures and schedule with you before beginning.
